RAILWAY EMPLOYES UNITE.
State Organization of Their Associ
ations Effected at a Meeting
The Omaha Bee says: "An orga
nization was perfected at. a quiet
meeting just held in Omaha that
may hare an important bearing
upon the politics of the state. For
some time past the railroad em
ployes at division points have been
organizing into local clubs, and
these have now been gathered un
der the banner of a state organiza
The object of this movement is to
oppose legislation harmful to the
interests of the railroad employes,
and the members of the order are
pledeced to drop party affiliations
when their class is threatened, and
to . support men and measures
known to be friendly to them.'
Henry Knodell,. the state orga
nizer, estimates the railway em
ployes of Nebraska at 15.000 and he
ays that nearly one-fourth of them
are already enlisted in tne move
ment. The Omaha chib alone has
a membership of about 900. The
railroad men have organizations in
Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas,
and North Dakota, and a convention
will be held in May for the forma
tion of a national organization.
The head of the movement is in
Minneapolis, but there is a strong
prospect of having the May conven
tion held in Omaha.
The Nebraska state board has
teen organized with the following
officers: President, W. W. Conklin,
Omaha: vice-presidents, Daniel
O'Shea of Wymore, W. Craft of Nor

SHOT AT HIS WIFE.
A University Place Man Who Can
Congratulate Himself on His
A story comes floating in from
University Place that D. M. Wolf, a
grocer in that village, has occasion
to entertain grateful reflections that
he is not an unerring bell-ringer
with a gun. One night early in this
week he was aroused by a suspicious
noise at the front door. Mr. Wolf
hastened at once to the door with a
light and a gun. When he inquired
through the door what was wanted
a man on the outside made some
reply and vanished. Mr. Wolf ex
tinguished the light in due time
and started back to- the bedroom.
On his way he noticed some one at
the kitchen window, and supposing
it to be a burglar who had effected
an entrance, pointed his weapon in
that direction and fired. He was
horrified in an instant to find that it
was his wife at whom he had shot.
She had slipped into the kitchen un
known to her husband, to close the
window blinds. So close was he
when he fired that Mrs. Wolfs neck
was powder burned, which was the
only injury sustained except a very
severe nervous shock which pros
trated the lady for some time.-.
It is without doubt that the opera,
'Neta, has created more genuine
interest and agreeable surprise than
any other entertainment presented
this season. It is fine throughout,
abounding in new and in interesting
features. Crowd the house ' again
to-night. Fremont Tribune.
The opera, "Neta," presented at the
opera house last Friday and Satur
day evenings by our school children
and local talent, under the manage
ment of the author, Mr. F. C. Cush
man, was one of the finest if not the
fcestjentertainmant ever presented in
this city. When we say this we
simply voice the sentiment of all
oar people without exception. One
thing is assured Mr. Cushman and
that is a cordial reception should he
.-again see fit to bestow as much gen
- nine pleasure as was accorded our
rpeeple by his recent efforts in our
citr. Grand Island Times.
